"I cannot sing the praises of Lilian enough, an incredible chef, teacher, story teller and organiser. I hired Lilian for a private cooking lesson and Lilian brought the tastes of Asia (Vietnamese on this occasion) to my home. It was an incredible experience and Lilian managed to craft a romantic atmosphere for my partner and I as we learned to cook together.

"Lillian is a natural teacher and gifted chef. Her engaging manner and hands-on techniques made the day both fun and informative. Whether you are wanting to expand your culinary repertoire or learn about Asian cooking in particular, I cannot recommend Lil highly enough. Not only are her teaching skills superb, but she is also adept at catering. Her tiny cakes and meringues are especially lovely, and I am keeping her number to hand for parties!"

“Having just enjoyed a fantastic day with Lilian & learning so many new skills I cannot recommend her cookery class enough.  She is an absolute natural teacher & so much fun to be around.  Lilian talks you through new skills in a very straightforward and relaxed manner and is an absolute joy. It is great not just to be standing & observing but actually doing the work.  I wouldn't hesitate to attend another class which represents excellent value for money & with a tasty lunch included who can argue?!  Not only did we learn to prepare new dishes but the science behind the food and cooking style was also explained.  Thank you Lilian”

"Lilian's cooking evening was a thoroughly enjoyable event. Eight of us learnt various skills on Asian cooking whilst tasting the delicious dishes. If you want to have an alternative dinner party which is fun, informative and a chance to experience authentic Asian cooking, Lilian's cooking party is for you!"
